I was looking for a fun and creepy meal for Halloween this year while watching Harry Potter for the 50th time! Some disgusting troll feet would be perfect main course, and I decided to pair this yummy meatloaf with my Toxic Waste Mac and Cheese!!

Did it work? Is it disgusting enough?

Hamburger Feet Ingredients:

This is my traditional meatloaf recipe that can be baked in loaf pans or rolled into meatballs anytime of year!

Ingredients to make halloween feet loaf  in white bowls.
  • Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Milk
  • Ground beef
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley
  • Onion slices and celery for decoration
  • Barbecue sauce to create the creepy, bloody appearance

How to make Halloween Meatloaf:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and set aside.

Mix the breadcrumbs and milk together in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside for at least 5 minutes to absorb the liquid.

Breadcrumbs mixed with milk in a large bowl.

Add the ground beef, onion, garlic, eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg, Parmesan cheese, and parsley to a large bowl. Gently mix together just enough to spread out the ingredients.

Add the breadcrumb mixture and mix with your hands until just combined. Do not over mix.

Divide the mixture in half and place on prepared baking sheet. Form each loaf into the shape of a foot, including toes. I had four, but you can do as many as you like.

Place the cut celery pieces on each toe to create a toe nail.

Meatloaf formed into the shape of two feet with four toes and celery pieces as toe nails on a foil lined baking sheet.

Stack thick onion slices together and place on the back of the foot to create a stump.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees when inserted into the center of the loaves.

Allow meatloaf to stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Note & Tips:

  • I sliced a white onion in half to create the stump. Try to find an onion that will not be wider than your loaf. Peel off some of the layers to make it smaller if needed.
  • Be careful not to make your feet too thin or they will dry out and end up over cooked.
  • Substitute whole cashews or onion pieces for the celery if needed.
  • Store leftover meatloaf in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat meatloaf in a 300 degree oven, in an air fryer at 280 degrees, or in the microwave until heated through.
